Another new day has began in the Novosibirsk Zoo and our polar bear family is curiously wondering what this day will bring them.

Hmmm, there’s definitely a yammy smell in the air ….

Oh bear, the keepers have left pumpkins to us! The first one became very rapidly an ex-pumpkin …. ­čÖé

Even the pumpkins are big they are no challenge for a polar bear’s teeth!

The trojka even found big pieces of meet on the snow.

Smelling something again ….

Dear keepers, please,┬á don’t keep us waiting! We’re thrilled to see what more you have in store for us!

I’m not sure if Gerda is coming out or going in backwards but she sure looks pleased with the big ‘steak’.

Of course, there was meat also for the kids!

Nordi or Shauna is giving the meat a gentle hug. ­čÖé

Gerda is leading her troup ‘downstairs’. It looks like there are more eatable treasures to be found.

Oh yes, more pumpkins!

That was really yammy! What a fantastic picnic in the snow you arranged for us! Thank you  so much, dear keepers!

Is there more?

Something’s coming flying – I’d better be prepared ….

…. wow, I must say I’m a skilful catcher.

86241542_2495263373915328_3591563223280648192_o

I must be in an exactly right position to catch the red thing!

If this doesn’t impress you I really don’t know what does!!! ­čÖé

All that yammy food made the family tired so Gerda, Nordi and Shauna decided to take a nap with well filled bellies.

  1. Dear Arkadij and Mervi
    The Russian Polar bears really are big, fluffy and hungry. Nordi and Shauna have grown so fast, they are not so small now in comparison with Gerda.

  2. Ich liebe die drei Guten!

    LG Brigitte

  3. Alle drei sind wieder herrlich und bestens im Bild festgehalten und kommentiert.

    Unschlagbar f├╝r mich ist aber mal wieder auch hier die Frau Mama – in diesem Falle GERDA, die Sch├Âne,
    wie Ihre Tatzen in der Manier “Ach Du meine G├╝te!” links und rechts an ihre Wangen oder ihre Schnauze
    dr├╝ckt! Einfach zum mindestens Doppel-Knuddeln!!

    Der Akt mit der roten Kugel ist nat├╝rlich auch gro├čes Kino!

    Wie immer beim Betrachten dieser gro├čartigen russischen Familie hatte ich viel Spa├č und
    bedanke mich deshalb gerne bei den berichtenden Akteuren MERVI und ARAKADIJ Laptenko!

  4. Dear Arkadij, dear Mervi!
    The three bears in Novosibirsk had the exciting days with the pumpkins, meat and apples.
    There is still a lot of snow in Novosibirsk.
    Hugs
    Ludmila

  5. Liebe Mervi,

    danke f├╝r`s Einstellen der wieder s├╝├čen Fotos.
    Nordi und Shauna sind gro├č geworden. Wenn beide nebeneinander stehen, sieht man doch einen deutlichen Gr├Â├čenunterschied.

    Sie hatten alle drei viel Spa├č mit den K├╝rbissen. Eine sch├Âne Besch├Ąftigung. Und wenn man diese ├ťberraschung auch noch essen kann……

    Liebe Gr├╝├če
    Monika

  6. Dear Mervi and Arkadij!
    Thank you for this well-made teamwork which gave me great pleasure.
    It was really fun to watch the photos of this wonderful polar bear picnic in Novosibirsk – one more beautiful than the other – and to read the hilarious subtitles.
    I found it touching that the bears were even given pumpkins since I was reminded of several pumpkin stories with Knut and Giovanna.
    The photo series of catching an apple is simply marvellous and the last pic of the sleeping bears heartwarming.

    Hugs
    Anke

  7. Wow – was f├╝r ein Fest ! ­čÖé
    K├╝rbisse, Fleisch und Obst.
    Die Pfleger meinten es wirklich
    gut mit den B├Ąren. Auf dem einen
    Foto sieht es aus, als wenn die Drei
    eine Polka tanzen hinunter in den
    Graben, very funny. Nach so
    gutem Essen muss man
    nat├╝rlich ruhen. ­čÖé

    Hi DEARs ALL/e – greetings to any of you, to the silent as well as to the rather ‘loud’ ones ­čÖé

    – – –

    Today it was my intention to send you a sign of hope and friendship in these rough times.

    Unfortunately – today of all days – there is no access to ‘Die Knuipe’
    ( and in ‘KWM’ we can no more see the ‘Editorial Staff’ contents . . .
    Hopefully this doesn’t mean kind of beginning of ‘the end’ and hopefully neither you nor VESA are hit of
    some kind of severe disease in addition to the known ones – hips and hands ).

    So, please allow me to send my little sign via KWM’s latest publication in the comment sector.

    Here we go – It’s a so called ‘GL├ťCKSBRINGER’
    (may one believe in such things or not, simply take it as a ‘token of Best Wishes’!

    https://tinyurl.com/Gluecksbringer-MeissenPUTTE

    Enjoy! – May the sense work!

  9. OT For MERVI

    The answer if one tries to enter the ‘Editorial Staff’-section is

    “Establish a database connection” !???

  10. Liebe Mervi und lieber Arkadij,
    tolle Bilder meiner besonderen Lieblinge!
    Vielen Dank, hat Spa├č gemacht mit Mervis witzigen Texten diese Bilder zu sehen.
    Liebe Gr├╝├če Moni K
